Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Greatful Chili!

Haven't been able to get on here for a few days but wow what a chili thread I almost missed! Hope I'm not being egotistical if I think it might have been inspired by my asking vapors for a good chili recipe, but in any event there are some spicy riches here. If I can source the ingredients in this culinary desert I'll definitely be trying some of these suggestions. Thank you, guys. This really is the go to place for all manner of things.

Hey Rob--just got back from a few days of exile myself, and yep, that thread was one of the best, though for me, just like 68, it was right up my Southwest alley! It was great to find out how many of the Forumites take an interest along your lines (for me, it is ONLY on "Mexican Food" so I in no way consider myself a "cook").

To quote HFlow, if so many Forumites are good dads (as evidenced in one of his threads), it only seems right that a number take an interest in at least some form of cooking!

This long boat ride to Amsterdam is looking better and better, though you'll only be on board for the Channel crossing!

Tell, I will ask you politely, especially in the context of a Chili thread, to avoid the phrase "right up my Southwest alley!" without also using the qualifier ( if you know what I mean).

Oh yeah--chalk that up with other examples of my regular PM-mispeak (at least mine has no real political significance...imagine if I really was at Munich; perhaps a chili receipe was just what the big four needed in 1938? Hmmm...you never know).

Hey Tell! You really miss this place when you can't get here, don't you find? I always make a point of scrolling back through the posts after an absence - it's like catching up with old friends. I like to know how everyone's doing.

Yep...and I trust you'll thus forgive the overuse of "!" (which I always swore I'd refrain from...damn...I'll be using the dreaded ";)" any day now!).

The simple :-) pales before your mighty animated icons of course. Thus does the puissant PM maintain his power in the land.

I don't want to rub this in but I'm looking at the father's day card my daughter made me last year and it clearly states " your the best dad!" sorry to break it to the rest of you " good" Dads

I have somewhere a birthday card done by my daughter that granted me immunity from misfortune for some finite period.


I think I need to apply for a renewal.

I will share any kudos with you for that thread. Chili powder is usually a mix of ground cayenne, garlic, cumin and often oregano. These are the basic spices needed I would think. And I was misleading in my recipe – chili needs to cook slowly for a good while - an hour is a rush job on a tight schedule – make extra as it tastes better the next day.

I've been making chili powder in a spice grinder lately with good results. Freshness I can't get from bought, but the good chili powders do have a depth to them I haven't been able to get. I haven't added smoked paprika yet, usually just a couple of Anchos and chipotles with some garlic powder and mexican oregano... great to rub on anything to throw on the grill...perhaps the next food thread should be a grilling extraveganza...

Glad you liked the dessert... not some many enjoy a nice pantry chef. I think it's the attitude of something.

Here's an old trick for pre-course pleasure.

1 pound dried Liberty Caps
1 gallon distilled h2o
1 pint Everclear

Pressure cook caps and water 15min.
reduce liquid by half
strain with cheese cloth
reduce by half and let cool

in a separate vessel mix dis-guarded caps with everclear, mix and cover at room temp for 2 hours, Press with doubled cheese cloth, add to cooled liquid.

Use edible cardboard and vessel.
